Lori Loughlin says she'd join 'Full House' reboot if money is 'fair'
It’s been officially announced that Netflix is bringing back the Tanner family for a Full House revival called Fuller House—but not everyone from the show’s original cast is on board to return yet. Lori Loughlin, who played Becky Katsopolis on the series, told Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday morning that she thinks everyone would like to reprise their roles—if the money Netflix offers is “fair.”
The actress told Access Hollywood Live hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that the streaming site has only made deals with half of the cast so far: Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and John Stamos.
“I think we would all like to come back if the powers that be are fair to all of us,” Loughlin said, “Favored nations would be fair. We want to be there, we want to come back, it’s up to them.” “Favored nations” refers to a contract clause that indicates an actor is entitled to the same terms as his or her fellow actors on a project, if those actors receive better terms.
Stamos announced Fuller House on Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. The reveal was followed by an official release from Netflix explaining the premise of the reboot. The series will follow D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure) as a pregnant, single mother raising two rebellious young boys. Her sister Stephanie (Sweetin), an aspiring singer, and Kimmy Gibbler (Barber), D.J.’s childhood best friend and a single mom raising a teenage daughter, move in with D.J. to help raise her growing family.
According to the Netflix release, the company is in talks with Bob Saget, Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Loughlin to make guest appearances. The series will kick off with a one-hour special followed by the rest of the 13-episode order, set to debut in 2016.
